Exam hell is over!

The General Baccalaureat 2006 is over.

 

I could barely think by the end of the week.

 

It started last monday with Philosophy - 4 hours. The essay question I answered was

 

Do we duties only towards others?

 

I spent far too longer pondering whether

  • other than others, is there only myself?
  • can I have a duty towards myself?
  • in thinking of a duty towards myself, don't I in fact treat myself as an other?

I'm glad I actually wrote a plan otherwise I'd have just been rambling for hours...

 

Anyway, hell week ended on Friday afternoon with three hours of my second modern foreign language - Spanish. In between all the rest: Latin, French, Literature, English as a Second Language, Maths and Computing, Music, History-Geography. At one point I had a nightmare in which I'd mistakenly been entered for Greek and was sitting facing a page of Plato for commentary on his political ideas...thanks be I woke up before it got any worse.

 

I spent quite a lot of Saturday on the phone to the boy. It feels like far too long since I've seen him. I'd fly off right away but I need a couple of days to wind down. Yesterday I took my pod and a dome tent to the dunes and spent the whole day just staring at the sea. I should market it as therapy.

 

I'm still physically a bit stressed so I need to get off this 'puter and get out for a nice slow run to see if I can't unknot at least some of these muscles.

 

I've missed all the GA guys so much. Sometimes I think I miss my boys (and gals of course) almost as much as I miss my boy.

 

peace OUT

Dude, I love that! Exactly the sort of things I'd enjoy pondering. I bet it was a great essay.

LOL, if anyone could handle impromptu Greek analysis I bet it's you ;)

Sounds awesome! hmm I think there's a shore somewhere within a hundred miles of here, I may just make a little journey myself when things settle down! ohhhh or maybe tomorrow!!! ***jumps around excitedly*** ....no I should wait.....or not :wacko:

 

Anyway it's great to have you back! Take care and have an awesome day!

Welcome back Sumbloke! :2thumbs: :hugs:

 

It's so good to hear from you again. I'm so glad that you could escape exam hell with out permament brain injury.

 

I'm afraid that I would have blow a gasket or something if I ran across a question like that. I would try to derive an equation or form a model and my copy of mathmatica would overheat and my head would explode.

 

That's what I love about the sciences. The jelly actually exists, as does the tree and with a shot of liquid nitrogen, you could nail it to anything. :lol:

 

 

 

[for people who don't know, one of the founding fathers of software engineering once described programming as trying to nail jelly to a tree.]
